  • BG Group Place: An architectural dynamo - by Christian Garcia
    By cgarcia47: This semester I worked on an article on BG Group Place, designed by Pickard Chilton, and the effects it had on downtown Houston, Texas.This skyscraper was designed and built in the middle of the 2008 recession. The LEED Platinum certified building replaced a much blighted block on Main Street filled with drugs and prostitution. With the completion of the project, the developer Hines proved Houston could overcome the recession, and the 800 block of Main Street could once again prosper.

    There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, there is a rapture on the lonely shore, there is society, where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more.

    -- George Gordon, Lord Byron

  • "Suspects" in the Studio - Increasing Diversity in Design Education
    By Derek Ham: The recent cases involving Mike Brown in Ferguson and Garner in New York all continue to illuminate how many people view Blacks (and especially Black men) in America. Architecture schools cannot avoid this discussion as many schools still have staggering low numbers of Black and other underrepresented minority students in their programs. I want to help us talk about these issues as we continue to try making our learning environments (the design studio) welcoming for people of all walks of life.

  • Columbia University, GSAPP 2014-2016 - what am I getting myself into?
    By Martina Dolejsova: A blog that records my two years in the Critical, Curatorial, and Conceptual Practices of Architecture Program at the GSAPP.
